Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-03-17  Henrychn: 39....Kh6?? A blunder!
Mar-03-17  JimNorCal: What's up with 33. Rf1. Not a natural looking move at all. The move did work in practice--Anna burned time responding to it and fell behind on the clock.

  tamar: 39...Kg8 is not a pleasant move to have to make, as the game then becomes a race between the b pawn and the d pawn, with Black's King allowing d8 with check.

But with her active rook Anna could have forced the trade into a holdable 4 v 3 same side pawn ending.

Tough end for her dreams of being a world champ.

The <CARLSEN SCHOOL OF CHESS>: get way ahead on the clock and let your opponent self-destruct (39 ... ♔g7-h6?? ) in <ZEITNOT>.

  Calli: " What's up with 33. Rf1?"

Fork on e2 threatened and if 33.Re1 then Nb5 attacks the Rook and the Queen.

Mar-03-17  JimNorCal: Why not Bf1?
Rf1 constricts all the white pieces, abandons the queenside and posts the rook to a square with no scope. Other than that ... seems OK

33. Bf1 Qb2 34. Re1 Qd2 35. Ra1 Nd1 abandons the kingside and posts the rook to a square with no scope. Other than that... seems OK
Mar-03-17  JimNorCal: Thanks BeatGiant! Heh.
